The Mission of the Bolenum Project

By: on July 22nd, 2017

THE OPPORTUNITY AT HAND

Taking advantage of unutilized areas of the market usually is a rather lucrative opportunity, and Bolenum sees this potential. They have aptly noticed that almost all cryptocurrency projects and blockchain initiatives are taking place in the Western World and Asia.

There are a few reasons that they have identified in their White Paper that may have prevented the African continent from adopting Blockchain solutions. Firstly, very few -if any- exchanges deal in the various currencies that nations across the African continent use. They mostly only use CNY, USD, or EUR. Difficult verification processes have also impeded exchanges’ addition of African currencies.

A lack of readily translated information on cryptocurrencies and the Blockchain may also contribute to lower participation levels. It is very difficult to be a part of something or use something if you have no idea what it even is or how it works.

SOLVING THESE PROBLEMS

Bolenum envisions responding directly to these problems to help bring crypto adoption to Africa. They plan on opening local exchanges, the first four being in Egypt, Ghana, South Africa, and Nigeria. Being located in these countries means they will accept local currencies, which are much easier for even neighboring nations to acquire than USD, EUR, and CNY.

The platforms will also provide trading services, wallet services, and secure payment methods on a peer to peer level. The local nature of these exchanges mean that local business custom, cultural considerations, and community will aid any verification processes and educational needs of its users.

The Bolenum Token (BLN) will allow for platform users to exchange and withdraw their accounts in the local currency as well. This is a huge step for encouraging adoption. But it will not only be an asset to trade in and out of fiat currencies, as Bolenum plans to have utility companies accept it and other businesses. They want people to be able to pay for their electricity and their groceries with BLN.

In the future they also hope to provide a BLN debit card which would be usable on the Mastercard/Visa network when shops and businesses do not already accept cryptocurrencies. The concept is not unlike BitPay’s card.

Asian Digital Currency Exchanges Unocoin, Coinhako and CHBTC Show Support for Exchange Union

By: on July 21st, 2017

19th July, Shanghai, China Exchange Union has attracted the attention of key exchanges in China in support of its ‘Universal token’ for cross-platform trading. Exchange Union represents a new focus for Huiyin Blockchain Venture Founder James Wo, who plans to bridge exchanges via a new inter-exchange trading token XUC. Exchange Union will act as an efficient clearing house for exchanges bringing them extra revenue, whilst traders can take advantage of price differences between platforms moving funds seamlessly between them.

ICO’s are increasingly capturing the attention of businesses across Asia and Unocoin, the largest digital currency exchange from India, is one of them. Sathvik Vishwanath, co-founder of Unocoin was regarded as a pioneer in the industry back when Unocoin was founded. At that time Bitcoin had just entered Indian markets and the Reserve Bank of India had responded by announcing some adverse policy. Despite that the prosperity of Bitcoin in India continued to grow and Sathvik was proved a visionary.

Today Exchange Union are very pleased to have the support of Sathvik who stated, “Exchange Union is a great project in terms of business model, core members and advisors. I believe that forward-looking companies would seek the opportunity to cooperate with Exchange Union. The development of Exchange Union will definitely have profound impact on global digital currency industry and we will keep supporting them.”

Meanwhile, Coinhako, one of the major digital currency wallets in Singapore, also held out the olive branch to Exchange Union. Yusho Liu, co-founder of Coinhako, said that he began seeking cooperation with global, high quality ICO projects and it was Exchange Union that attracted his attention. Liu noted the strength of Exchange Union’s credible core members and reputable advisors. Yusho has shown strong confidence in this project and already had deep discussions with James Wo, founder of Exchange Union.

During the preparation period of Exchange Union, David Lee, co-founder and CEO of CHBTC, contacted James immediately and showed great interests in this project. He also said  that he would do his best to support Exchange Union.

The first batch of Exchanges in the Union will sign agreements this December. Exchange Union will make important contribution to bridging the gap between exchanges globally. As a “universal” digital currency, XUC will be traded across exchanges in the Union. This project will be launched on the largest ICO platform Token Market, starting from 9:00PM 7th August 2017 Beijing time. Funds raised will be used for technique development, strategic investment (acquisitions and subscriptions of digital currency exchanges related shares and tokens) operation marketing and launching fees.

Bowhead Health Creates World’s First Blockchain-Powered Medical Instrument

By: on July 19th, 2017

Blockchain technology can serve many different purposes, most of which have yet to be discovered. The medical sector is one area prone to disruption and innovation. Bowhead Health is trying to bring the medical sector and blockchain technology closer together as we speak. They are providing a real-time biometric test unit which is fully powered by the blockchain. An interesting concept, to say the least.

Blockchain in the Medical Sector Makes Sense

Our society can greatly benefit from solutions which allow us to optimize our health. More specifically, there is a growing need for personalized solutions and treatments. Despite the health supplements market being valued at US$200bn annually, there are still far too many generic “solutions”. Bowhead Health aims to change this one step at a time. Their new product will allow anyone in the world to test their body and work out a personalized solution to optimize their health.

One particular factor that comes to mind is preserving patient anonymity. The company will take care of this, as they give users the option to disclose their information for research or not. All of the patient records are stored in smart contracts, which is a nice touch. Users will always be in full control of their data, and how others can interact with this information. Blockchain technology can be used for both public and private information, after all.

What is the Bowhead Product?

The Bowhead device in question is connected to the internet and monitors the health of individuals at home. It can also be used as a way to acquire new knowledge for both patients and healthcare professionals. Some users will need expert advice and be keeping tabs on their habits is of the utmost importance in this regard. What makes the Bowhead even more attractive is how it can dispense personalized medication. The initial phase will let it provide supplements and vitamins, but there is always room for future improvements.

While the Bowhead itself will take care of the dispensing aspect, there will also be a companion app for iOS and Android. This app will allow patients to see their data, interact with healthcare professionals, and even receive reminders to stay on top of their schedule. All things considered, it sounds like a very potent ecosystem which will radically change the world of healthcare as we know it today. Plus, the app is very intuitive to use, which makes it accessible to [less] tech-savvy users alike.

Whitepaper and Token Sale

There is a lot more going on behind the scenes of Bowhead health. The team has put together a comprehensive whitepaper which touches upon every aspect of this project one can think of. It is evident such a device can make a major impact on the healthcare industry as a whole. In fact, the paper also mentions the prototypes which have been developed over the past 18 months, including the Bowhead, its mobile app, and test cartridges.

Rolling out such a project on a global scale will not be cheap. This is why the Bowhead Health team will organize an ICO, during which 40 million of the 100 million AHT tokens will be sold. Said token represents the payment distribution from pharmaceutical and research companies. The ICO will commence on July 17th and run until August 31st. There is no minimum investment goal nor a maximum cap. Tokens will be priced at US$0.65 per AHT, although a bonus schedule is in place for the first 15 million tokens being sold.

CORION Announces ICO Details for its Revolutionary Platform & Stable-Rate CryptoCurrency

By: on July 19th, 2017

CORION Platform Offers the Easiest Access to the Crypto World

ZUG, SWITZERLAND–(Marketwired – Jun 18, 2017) – CORION (https://www.corion.io/ICO)full-service blockchain platform powered by a revolutionary new stable-rate token, today announced final details for their public crowdsale to begin on June 18th and end July 30th 2017. Built on Ethereum Classic, the CORION stable-price token eliminates the guesswork that comes with fluctuating prices. Its algorithm enables special automated inflation-deflation control, assuring stability of the CORION token as a stable means of payment worldwide. CORION’s white papers can be found here.

Participants in the CORION crowdsale will gain access to the CORION Platform, and have stable-price digital tokens deposited in their multifunctional CORION Wallets immediately, allowing instant, low-cost payments. Early investors will receive a 25 percent bonus the very first day, 20 percent bonus during the first week, a 15 percent bonus the second week, and progressively lower bonuses throughout the campaign. Investors will also be incentivized by CORION’s affiliate reward of 1-5 percent.

Funds raised through CORION’s crowdsale will be distributed to further developments and investments managed by the CORION Foundation (50 percent), to the Stability Fund managed by the Foundation (25 percent), to the team members for their two year of work (16 percent), future developers and associates working on the CORION Platform (4 percent), and marketing, promotions, and growth (5 percent).

CORION’s Marketplace allows anyone with a minimum purchase of 3,000 CORION tokens (a $2,400 investment) to join the community as a Service Provider and start their own business and start acquiring customers. The marketplace provides an excellent tool to promote any business online or offline anywhere in the world. From there, the mainstream crowd is engaged through affiliate programs and shopping communities that generate demand for usage of the platform. As business grows, so does the token supply, thus fuelling the system and allowing users to earn daily rewards from staying active within the community.

The CORION Platform also features a built-in automated inflation and deflation control system that ensures the stable price of the coin to carry out transactions. If the price of CORION rises above $1 on the main exchanges, (i.e. there is a demand for more tokens), the system will release a maximum 2.5 percent additional tokens daily. On the other hand, if the price of CORION drops below $1 on the main exchanges, (i.e. there are more tokens in circulation then the system needs), no tokens will be emitted. To make sure the system works, set fees are calculated after each transaction and later burned to make sure they never appear in the system again.

“One of the biggest deterrents for new cryptocurrency users is the hassle of monitoring the hugely fluctuating prices of cryptocurrencies. With CORION, the price of the token remains stable, giving community users all the freedom to buy and sell in the marketplace without a major financial risk. We look forward to introducing CORION to a larger audience through this token crowdsale, and putting investments towards funding this truly revolutionary platform,” said Miklos Denkler, CEO of CORION
